Brandon Browner charged with breaking into ex-girlfriend's house, threatening to kill her
Browner allegedly broke into the home of his ex-girlfriend through a locked window. TMZ Sports reported that he “allegedly chased the victim, dragged her and then smothered her in a carpet,” while her two children were present, and that he took a Rolex watch valued at $20,000 from the victim before fleeing her home to escape the police.
Browner was signed by the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2005 before spending four seasons in the CFL. He got his second chance in the NFL in 2011 with the Seattle Seahawks, with whom he won Super Bowl XLIII over the Broncos. The next season he landed with the New England Patriots, winning Super Bowl XLIX over the Seahawks. His last season in the league was a 2016 stint back in Seattle.
